All over Ireland, there are properties in need of serious repair and The Great House Revival champions the bravery of those willing to take them on. But restoring old buildings is never easy.

The series charts the highs and lows of such complicated building projects, from tight timeframes to the relentless surprising challenges which older structures generate. Watch it back on RTÉ Player.

Last night's episode followed the transformation and restoration of three 1790's agricultural barns into a family home. Click through the gallery above to see the results.

With three children all under the age of 5, Belinda and Lorcan Carpenter converted three farmyard barns into their dream family home with a budget of €250,000.

Set in the picturesque hills of the Wicklow-Carlow border on the grounds of Belinda's childhood home Munny House, the barns needed extensive renovation and conversion work in order to transform the dilapidated donkey house into a bespoke family home.

Having converted another of the barns at an earlier date into a smaller, temporary family dwelling, the couple have some experience with restoration.

However, with a daunting five-month building schedule, a glamping business to run, no official architect to help draw plans, strict mortgage criteria delaying the project and three young children to juggle, Belinda and Lorcan have certainly not set themselves an easy challenge.
